Description

Short and Bouldery

Location

Just right of the trail/ gully that leads to upper S-Curve, behind a dead tree and large boulder. Get a Grip is right of, and Shares anchors with Get a Life.

My two cents has this as one of the best routes on the upper s curves. It packs a ton of great climbing into three bolts on perfect rock. I also found it slightly easier than Get a Life, just a matter of styles. Stick clip the first bolt. Feb 15, 2015

You can easily reach from the adjacent rock and pre clip the first clip. Cruxy at the beginning and end. Loved the start for its technical personality. The feet are there so go for it. Jul 1, 2014

I found this route harder than 11a. If you compare it to other routes in the curves like high dive or black monday it feels more like at least 11b. While it is short it will have you scratching your head looking for the better holds. It's like a v3 or a v4 high ball boulder problem. Make sure you have an attentive belayer since a fall before the 2nd bolt could lead to a nasty landing in some sharp rocks below. Jun 16, 2014
